Work in australia

  1. I'm a nurse from Montreal and would like to go work in australia.
    Where can I have informations about that? Where is the best place to work? What are the conditions of working? What is the salary?
    Is there any canadian nurses who are there right now and can tell me what is the life and work over there?
    Thanks!

    I'm a nurse who works in Australia, we have alot of nurses who come from other countries here to work mainly from Sth Africa and Nigeria and Asia, some don't stay around to long it is just a way of getting into the country.

    It can be tough sometimes but I'm sure it is nursing anywhere. Where i work we have 1 nurse to 5 sometimes 6 patients the shifts are 7am to 3pm, 2.30 pm to 10.30 pm, 10pm to 7.30 am.

    The pay can vary any where from around $23.00 upwards depending on what year you are, i currently get around $55.00 per hour but i do incharge shifts.

    There are companies in Australia that do exchange programs so maybe you could check these out and come over here to work for a while to see how you like it and then if you don't you can always go back without throwing anything away over there.
    Good luck in your decisssion making.

    Hi Larthur!
    Do you know the name of the companies that does the exchange program?
    When you say incharge shifts do you mean work evening or weekend shifts?
    Thanks you so much for your answer!:spin:

    Hi,
    There are many ads in our nursing magazines asking if you want to work overseas, I have listed a couple of websites below, maybe you could also try searching via the internet at your end to see what results you get, good luck in your quest.

    To answer your other question, I work mostly afternoon shift 2.30 to 10.30 pm but i also do in charge shifts some mornings it depends how i juggle my kids and whether I can work the morning shift or not.

    Regards Lynne.
